Giveaway: Work Sharp Sharpeners

Update: Congrats to Ron G and Barclay M, winners of this week's giveaway!

A dull knife is a useless (and dangerous) knife. These tools are at their best when they're in hair-popping shape, and with a little maintenance with the right tools, you can keep yours in top condition for a lifetime. The best part? We've got some great sharpeners on hand, and we're giving them away for free!

This week, we're giving two lucky readers a sharpening system each, brought to you by our sponsor, Work Sharp. They've been in the business of keeping an edge for over 40 years, making some of the industry-leading sharpening tools right in the USA.

This contest is sponsored by Work Sharp.

CRKT Outrage

Every once in a while, you’ll come across gear that looks so good you can’t wait to get your hands on it. That’s the case with the new CRKT Outrage—and not just for its strikingly good looks, but for its thoughtful ergonomics as well. It’s designed by Ken Onion, whose knives are well-regarded in the EDC community for the way they look like they just look belong in your hand. The Outrage accomplishes this with a lightweight 6061 aluminum handle, deep finger guard, and excellent top jimping. These ensure excellent control and retention of the blade during use. The knife flips open quickly and smoothly with a simple flick of your finger thanks to CRKT's low-friction, IKBS ball-bearing pivot technology. Once open, you'll find its 3.19” modified drop-point blade offers a strong piercing tip and a curved belly for slicing and cutting. And for all its high-value design and ergonomics, its accessible price is far from outrageous. You can grab the CRKT Outrage for your everyday carry at the link below.

CRKT Hootenanny

Don’t let the name fool you, this knife means business. The newest collaboration from award-winning knife designer Ken Onion and CRKT, the Hootenanny brings several high-end features to a shockingly affordable blade. The Hootenanny features a flipper deployment system with CRKT’s oversized IKBS ball bearing system. This means that the knife is quick, smooth, and easy to open with one hand. The index finger choil and ample jimping seen on the blade's spine and handle ensure precise blade control. The unique two-tone aesthetic isn’t just for looks — the metal frame of the knife has an integrated lock to keep the blade safely in place and away from your fingers. The all-new Hootenanny combines the best features of a hunting knife with the convenience and size of an everyday carry blade.
